    Good! Reading our VM history is the weirdest trip down memory lane. And you're leaving me on a total cliffhanger in your AMA thread.

    How are you?

    Actually, staying in character is something I normally don't have to worry about too much thankfully. Most of the care I take is in trying to make sure my posts don't weird weird so the other people playing can enjoy them.

    The various styles of ballroom, there's actually three competitive styles in Australia and all of the people I teach compete in all three. I really do hope it comes to fruition, it will drastically improve my financial situation if it does. The problem is convincing my boss it is worth while. Even though I can guarantee she'll earn more money than she is now, she's hesitant about how cheap I want to make it.

    Oh I didn't doubt for one moment that it would be a difficult or busy job, although I have to say three meetings in a day is pretty extreme. Still, anyone who read your post in the jobs thread is quite likely to want to mob you, there are a lot of people desperate to work in the gaming industry on PC alone.

    I didn't get to sleep until 6:30 this morning (yay insomnia!) so I ended up watching hours upon hours of anime and half a movie. Does that count as something new?

    That's good to hear =] And things are rather meh on my end. Work and school are being, well, what you would expect from work and school. That's honestly about it

    Sounds exciting!

    The same professor wants to go for coffee / tea in the café on the first floor of my uOttawa job. She's so kind. Last time I had confronted her in order to explain my concerns about a professor I didn't feel comfortable approaching. She's friends with that professor, so she understands her mannerisms.

    In any case, this time we talked about my French tutoring I do on Tuesdays. I had mentioned to her that my "students" had cancelled today and that I was available to see her earlier in the afternoon, but unfortunately she was busy till 15h00. I explained how the tutoring works - going over grammar first, looking at homework (if applicable), but mostly reading children's books aloud in order to correct pronunciation - and she was thrilled about it. We talked about the one class I'm taking - FLS3761 (she taught me FLS2761, the prerequisite course) - and how unequal the classes are ability-wise now. She says it's such an odd phenomenon: there's no middle anymore (70%). Either the students are 80%+ or under 50%. She's perplexed by it but attributes it to effort and laziness. She says I'm the kind of students all professors want because I do ask so many questions (thereby showing interest in material) and it's obvious that I put in a lot of effort.

    We talked about work, too, and how laziness is seen there. I was saying how perturbing it is that students and workers sometimes accept offers of admission or positions and then waste the opportunity. For every person that does that, another person was rejected and may have taken it more seriously or needed it more (such as a single parent with kids to feed). I explained that there are people I work with that, on the weekends when the full-timers aren't there to supervise, spend time doing their homework and sending private emails on the work computers for hours rather than helping out with the work. They're paid 13$ to do really basic things to begin with, and they twitter away their time on the PC on the weekends when they know they can't do that. I'd feel so much shame knowing I was doing that and someone else was picking up my slack. She liked the wording of "There's no shame left in the world" (said in French, though) because she completely agreed.

    Anyway, had pasta for dinnies. Tomorrow I have school and work! and homework. Tonight is essay writing

    Oooo OK disclosure rules! Got'cha.

    I was reading on Jewish spatial tension in Montreal, QC. Very boring I have to make a resume on it, too. Ugh.

    Had a wonderful chat with a prof today! She's so supportive. Very nice lady

    It's night for you, right KuKu? What did'ja do today?

    Ugh, it did that to me recently too. I lost an RP post I spent an hour typing and had to redo it.

    You're welcome.
    I don't know if new is the word, but all the recreational-level dancers at my studio have a competition this weekend so I've been flat-out with teaching them, especially because the boss keeps adding more events on for my students. I'm still in negotiations with her about a school dance programme I've written too which is taking a lot of time and effort.

    So I guess when you count uni, it's not exactly anything new but I've got a large amount of the same haha! You're really lucky to have the job you have, so many people on here must be completely and utterly envious.

    oo~ and I'm good just in Physical Geography class now! Had to go and see a bijillion people at uOttawa to make sure that I was 1) out of Co-op, 2) set up to receive emails regarding scholarships, and 3) set up to have two exams deferred due to over-lap.

    And four classes today totalling 6h of classes. Have been up since 7:00am zzz at school since then asides the brief moment I had to run home to grab my charger because I forgot it. Took a full hour to get there and back

    Anything neat you're working on at work right now?

    Very little to be honest since it's not even 7:00am yet. I've got a very busy day of doing nothing ahead of me though which I'm looking forward to after how hectic the rest of the week has been. Yourself?

Hey! How has everyone been??
I know I haven't been the most active person these past couple of months, but hopefully I'll start getting back into the swing of things now that I've started to find a bit of balance in my day to day!
I see loads of new faces, though I'm unsure how many are name-changes and how many are newbies, so you might have to help me out here!

Anyway, hmm in case you're wondering what I've been up to:

In ways, I feel quite a lot older this time of year- and thinking back, I realize how living on my own has changed me a lot, and even when I think I am mature, I look back again and see how much I mature further.

That being said, I realize that this Christmas, what I really want is the comforting feeling of friends and family around- and just being happy to be there in their presence. Now, this Christmas, I am away from my parents and brother and other family (it's too expensive to...

My birthday is at the end of October and I still don't know which of the two I want. Which should I get??
I have to get my game imported anyway (boo region lock) so I have some time to think about it after release.. ;_; but I want as little spoilers as possible.. but I want to make sure that I choose the right one.
Black and White was easy because of Black City/ White Forest but from what I've seen so far from X and Y I can't decide. I don't want to get both because I wouldn't play...

So I've decided on a cosplay for October Expo 2013~ It'll be revealed under the spoiler below. (I can't make it this May Expo, as I have an exciting wedding to attend to!) But, I'm aiming to have it done for maybe August.
Looking to see also if I can find some sort of proper pattern making classes. I usually try and find patterns to use as a base and then I alter them to make my other cosplays, or I'll just improvise.. but I really do want to learn how to actually do garment construction....
